Users who clicked on some ads on Yahoo were directed to sites which launched malicious code, which exploits vulnerabilities in Java and installs malware-- short for malicious software-- on their computers.

Flagging, starring and bumping.
People actually click on ads these days!?!?!?!
I thought they were simply unbelievably annoying constants of the internet. I didnt realize they were still relevant. I havent intentionally clicked on an ad since the year 2000. Sometimes those moving ads get me cuz its hard to click the X to close 'em. Tricky bastards.edit on 4109x6741America/ChicagovAmerica/Chicago1 by six67seven because: (no reason given)

Ive noticed recently that when you go on to some pages then click the box you want the page realigns its self after a second or two and lo and behold you have inadvertently clicked an add....hmmmm
Bumped & flagged.
I use Yahoo often since I use email through them, while I never intentionally click on ads I have done so accidentally at times. Thanks for the warning.
I agree 1 Million percent...who in the hell *actually* clicks on those things?

I dont want to ruffle any feathers here, but I'm guessing women do the majority of the ad-clicking.
A study should probably be conducted to clear my name. Lmao!
